How to remove Veza Ransomware and decrypt .veza files

Veza Ransomware is a type of malicious software that encrypts files on a computer and demands a ransom in exchange for the decryption key. It typically infects computers through malicious email attachments, fake software downloads, or exploit kits.

When Veza Ransomware encrypts a file, it adds the “.veza” extension to the filename. It uses a strong encryption algorithm to lock the files, making them inaccessible without the decryption key.

After encrypting the files, Veza Ransomware creates a ransom note on the desktop or in the folders containing the encrypted files. The ransom note usually contains instructions on how to pay the ransom and receive the decryption key.

At the time of writing, there is no known decryption tool specifically for Veza Ransomware. However, Emsisoft has developed a decryption tool called “STOP Djvu Decryptor” that may be able to decrypt some variants of the ransomware, including those that add the “.veza” extension.

To decrypt .veza files without a decryption tool, you may need to restore your files from a backup, use a file recovery tool, or seek help from a professional cybersecurity expert. It is not recommended to pay the ransom as there is no guarantee that you will receive the decryption key or that your files will be restored.
